Choosing Figs | Neurotic as Hell | A Travel, Lifestyle, and Life List Blog


OK, here’s how Eric and I did on picking the top THIRTEEN of American Idol. (They decided on having 13 over 12 at the “last minute” which in other words means it was planned from the start.)

Val Eric
Danny Gokey Danny Gokey
Anoop Desai Anoop Desai
Tatiana Nicole Del Toro Ricky Braddy
Adam Lambert Adam Lambert
Jasmine Murray Jasmine Murray
Matt Giraud Matt Giraud
Megan Corkey Mishavonna Henson
Nick Mitchell Ju’Not Joyner
Scott McIntyre Scott McIntyre
Arianna Afsar Kendall Beard
Von Smith Lil Rounds
Kristen McNamara Alexis Grace

BLUE = Performed and Made it to the Top 12 13
GREEN = Did not make it

So Eric won 8 to 7.

Here are the picks for the final three…

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
